THE AGGREGATE MARKET
Though we saw a big drop in new listings and under-contracts from the previous week because of Thanksgiving, relative to the 2019 market, last week was still super active. In 2019 during Thanksgiving week, 11 properties came to market and 41 went under contract. This year 30 went live, which is a wonderful infusion of needed inventory, with 49 going under contract.
Even with this year-over-year increase in inventory, our market sits at .48 months of inventory, with a balanced market at 5-6 months of inventory. This is an extraordinarily tight market.
THE MARKET BY PRICE BAND
As noted in previous weeks, it is good to look at the price bands in three-week chunks, as they can vary significantly from week to week, and taken all together, we can better see trends.
All of our price bands have been showing good health. To note, the $1-1.5mm segment saw a 900% sell-through rate last week, which is higher than we’ve seen since March. I’m curious if there was a new loan product for this segment that gave people the green light to buy.
Local Real Estate in a Nutshell
Thankfully, the Northern Colorado real estate market continues to show robust health as we head into the fall/winter.
Sellers, there is significant pent-up demand right now. It is a good time to come to market for most categories. With so little inventory, you will get tons of eyes on your property with little competition. Call us to talk about if this makes sense for your property.
National Macro Data
SHOWINGS CONTINUE TO OUTPERFORM 2019
Nationally we’re seeing continued buyer demand, indicated by higher than normal showing rates for this time of year; see the chart below for an indication of showings in all of CO. Pending sales are up 28% YoY from 2019, and new listings are up 9% from this time last year. Also, the average list-to-sale price ratio is now at 99.5% nationally, which indicates an extreme seller’s market.
Our Exclusive Listings
In this week’s installment of the Burgess Group Community Connection Series, Susie Rinehart (writer, ultrarunner, educator, mom, coach and cancer survivor) tells us about her journey to form The Brave Over Perfect Project.
In 2016 Susie was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive brain stem tumor which sparked a brave new path for her. What started as a letter to her children became a best selling memoir, Fierce Joy. The lessons she learned while writing this and reflecting on her life inspired a new career as a life coach, inspirational speaker, and writer.
Susie also talks about her upcoming winter workshops for young women ages 15-29. The Tame Your Inner Critic workshops will focus on cultivating confidence, courage, and joy.
